CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop

Today, members of the Reverse Confetti DT and I are playing along with
CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop!
If you're following along with the hop, you probably arrived here
from Linda Beeson's blog.

I decided to use CAS(E) This Sketch #174 designed by Chrissy Larson 
to make my card:


As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew that it was a perfect sketch to use 
Reverse Confetti's You Are a Star to make a card for Austin,
celebrating his success in his school play.


I started by using my Zig Markers to watercolour my background.
Then, I spritzed it with a bit of white ink mixed with water.


I stamped the You Are a Star stamps onto their You Are a Star Confetti Cuts,
which I diecut from watercolour paper -- the same as my background
Then, I added a few wooden stars as well.


 

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch 
and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Thursday, June 2nd to link up your card.

Your next stop on the CardMaker Magazine Blog Hop is Dawn Lusk's blog.
If you get lost, or would like to start at the beginning of the hop,
you can find the complete list of the blog hop on the CardMaker Magazine Blog.

(Oh, and for prize information, check out the Reverse Confetti blog!)

Thanks for looking!
